4th Year Anniversary Bash, New Brews, & Summertime!

Summer in the NW reminds us that life is continuously in motion, a revolving cycle of extinguishing what has decayed and welcoming what will emerge, grow, evolve and flourish.

This very notion, is perhaps more applicable to 7 Seas Brewing right now more so than ever.  Especially over this past year, we have been in a constant mode of movement and in our eyes, progress.  It has been delightful to see happy friends and customers reveling amongst pints in the new Tap Room, producing more beer at a higher level of quality and consistency than ever, and hopefully enhancing our beautiful community of Gig Harbor in small, but meaningful ways.  So, thank you to everyone that has joined us and been a part of this ongoing journey.  We don’t have a final destination in mind, so let’s just enjoy the ride, handle the rough seas with composure, and hope for smooth sailing along the 7 Seas.

Time can fly (or sail...ha) by fast! Hard to imagine it’s been four years since that first batch of Cutt’s NW  Amber rolled out to the Tides Tavern for release. That was July 9th, 2009 and 4 years later, it's time to party and say thanks! Thank you for supporting us in this crazy journey, for embracing our vision and amazing staff, and for enjoying our tasty brews time and time again! To say thanks, we’d like to throw a party in YOUR honor. Come help us celebrate our first summer downtown!

7 Seas 4th Year Anniversary Bash

Join us on Saturday, July 27th from 12noon-8pm out front of our Tap Room downtown. We will be showcasing 5 local bands, local food vendors, a few antics, and a large variety of ice cold 7 Seas brews.  On the stage we'll have Perry Acker, Ben Union, Kim Archer, SweetKiss Momma, and Red Stone Sinners. The party is a +21 event. The cost of such an amazing day? $3 per person which 100% goes to the bands. Credit/debit cards will only be accepted for merchandise purchases, so cover, beer, and food will be on a cash basis. There will be an ATM on-site. The Tap Room will not be open on Saturday at all. Also, there will be NO growler fills that Saturday, so stock up prior. Walk, bike, designate a driver, just be sure to be safe!

Hope you can join us!

 

As the weather has improved and we thirst for both the warmth of sunshine on our face and of course that Proper Pint of 7 Seas Ale, we have recently opened our Tap Room's outdoor beer garden.  Who doesn’t enjoy a cool, refreshing pint while enjoying our brief yet beautiful NW Summer?  We have been rolling up the garage door that leads into the Tap Room for some fresh air, a pleasant breeze, and JENGA. 10 different 7 Seas brews on tap, including some only available in the Tap Room. Summertime also means a new Seasonal beer, our 1st barrel-aged project, and we have been thinking about this one for a while!

NEW SEASONAL BEER RELEASE:

Life Jacket Summer Ale

Brewed for the warm, stunning, long days of Summer in the Pacific NW, Life Jacket Summer Ale will refresh and quench your thirst like no other. Concocted with both domestic and German Pilsner malts, producing a light golden hue and providing a crisp, clean and dry malt base for the Yakima Valley grown Amarillo and Mosaic hops to emerge from. Abundant late hop additions in the kettle and whirlpool contribute powerful hop notes of citrus and berries in the flavor and aroma, while bitterness remains muted. Whether your mowing the lawn, weeding the garden, hiking the mountains, kayaking the coast, or enjoying the beaches, always be safe and bring a Life Jacket!

Availability: Summer Seasonal, JUNE-AUGUST

ABV: 4.2%         IBU: ~38

 

1st BARREL AGED PROJECT:

Bourbon Barrel-Aged Port Royal Export Stout

The beer shares many of the same qualities of Port Royal Stout offers. However, after the extended aging time and the prolonged contact with the oak Maker's Mark bourbon barrel, this version weaves a velvety mouthfeel with flavors of vanilla, bourbon, finishing a complex creation.

Served in a 10oz snifter, no growler fills.

Availability: LIMITED

ABV: 7.2%       IBU: ~40


Perhaps if you’ve visited the Tap Room recently, you’ve noticed the various pieces of art on display.  We enjoy featuring local artists’ work and will rotate it every couple months.  Our current artist is Devin Reynolds, an Tacoma based artist utilizing metal as his canvas. Devin unleashes chemical reactions and oxidation to his  unique paintings as they unfold and develop into their final form. They truly are engaging and captivating pieces that are well worth viewing and contemplating.  Please check them out, we’re thrilled to have them on display.

We are extremely fortunate to have had all of the amazing support from the local community here in Gig Harbor and throughout Washington! Thank you again to all of our customers, friends, wholesale clients, family members, and any individual who has supported 7 Seas Brewing in any capacity whatsoever.  We are continuing to learn, grow, and improve upon what we’ve started.  We hope you enjoy the results!

Cheers,

The 7 Seas Crew

'3 Years of 7 Seas Beers' Anniversary Bash, Expansion Update, & Summertime

Here at 7 Seas Brewing, we have recently moved brewing operations into our new home in a portion of the old QFC/Uddenburg's building in downtown Gig Harbor.  The building is ideally situated just a block off the scenic waterfront and in close proximity to local shops, restaurants, other small businesses and a soon to be constructed public dock for boaters and fisherman.  The brewery, featuring a new, three vessel 25 BBL brew-house (775 Gal.) occupies a majority of the space and is now operational with the first batches just finishing up. We have also moved and installed our previous two vessel 8.5 BBL brew-house (264 Gal.) into the new location and will begin experimenting and formulating some new seasonal offerings.

Our first objective was to efficiently move the brewing operations, and begin brewing beer in our new home.  Our entire team worked extremely hard to make this transition happen smoothly and we’re happy to be brewing beer on a new, beautiful, well-engineered (and shiny!) system.

We have now focused our efforts towards building the new Tap Room and can’t wait to have our amazing customers here to enjoy it all.  We anticipate opening to the public before the end of 2012 and in the meantime, we’re continuing to operate the old Tap Room at 3207 57th St. Court NW, next to the Inn at Gig Harbor.  Make sure to enjoy our last Summer there, especially outside in the spacious NW-style Beer Garden.

Another new artisan craft is coming to Gig Harbor soon. Heritage Distilling Company will be opening in our previous location. We can’t wait to see what spirits they turn out! With vodka, gin, and whiskey to start, it looks like they have a wide array of offerings to satisfy all. Congrats to HDC and welcome to the hood!

We are excited about relocating and expanding 7 Seas Brewing Co.  However, we are also sad to say goodbye to our previous location where we have brewed, established ourselves, made friends, celebrated, conversed and enjoyed the quaintness of it all.  Although moving inherently creates change, we assure you that the identity, vision, aesthetic, and principles of 7 Seas are strongly resolute.  Indeed, change can create apprehension and skepticism, but know that this transition is conducted with scrupulousness, loyalty to our values, and intended to benefit us all.  New jobs will be created, Historic Gig Harbor will breathe new life, less waiting in line for a pint or growler fill, and more Ultimate Proper Pints of 7 Seas beer for everyone, including kegs to go finally. We will continue our passion to brew great beer, establish an enduring yet innovative brand, and create a friendly and inclusive Tap Room for our customers to enjoy.

Since our inception, we have been fortunate to attract an extremely loyal group of customers, including those who frequent the Tap Room and our wholesale clients throughout the South Sound region.  We appreciate and value all of you!  So, in 7 Seas style, it's time to throw down and thank all of you with '3 Years of 7 Seas Beers' Anniversary Bash! Our chance to show thanks and celebrate another glorious year of 7 Seas beers!

Join us on Saturday, July 21st from 12noon-8pm @ 7 Seas Tap Room (the one behind the hotel). We'll have local music brought to you by Perry Acker, Sweetkiss Momma, Ben Union, and more! There is a $3 cover charge that goes directly to the music artists. Buck-B-Q will be in the house again, serving an array of delicacies! The event is 21+, sorry no kiddos. Also cash only, but we will have an ATM on-site. Parking is located in two areas: in the lot right off 56th St, previously a satellite Peninsula Subaru lot, and next to the old theater, behind Tanglewood Grill, in the lot of the new building there. Parking will be clearly marked and parking assistants to. well....assist. Please understand and be respectful to all of our great neighbors who let us do this. Please park only in designated areas and most of all, BE SAFE!

As we move into Summer time, there are plenty of upcoming events worth attending.  We hope to see some familiar faces there.  Also, we are nearly set to release one of our more popular, anticipated Seasonal Offerings; Rude Parrot IPA.  Thank you to everyone who has supported us, enjoyed our beers, offered a helpful hand in this time of transition or volunteered at an event.  Just like having a pint is best enjoyed amongst friends, brewing beer is also a team game.  We are grateful to SO many individuals who have helped make this all happen.

Cheers to you all,

-7 Seas Crew

Custom Growlers, Spring Seasonal Brews, & Expansion

What a busy start to the New Year! A winter wonderland was dropped on our door steps providing snow days for all. After Snowmaggedeon passed it was catch-up time. Here at 7 seas we have been very busy!

It's that 7 Seas Custom Growler time of year again! The 2012 edition will be released in mere weeks, and we can't wait to show you! There will be 500 crafted and they are all numbered. The growlers were custom made in Germany, then customized by Gig Harbor's own Fresh NW Design. The end result is one bad-ass peice of functional art! Hope to see you there.

7 Seas 2012 Custom Growler &
Spring Seasonal CDA Release

Saturday, March 10th @ 12noon (opening 2 hrs early) This is the day to bring your
2011 Growler and get your same #.

All remaining growlers are then available to all.

This years edition is a tribute to the revered HOP.

We have a few debit machine's on loan, so things ought to move along quickly. Growlers are $60 +tax this year (Sorry, NO checks). WE WILL ALSO RELEASE OUR SPRING SEASONAL, Cascadian Dak Ale, THAT WEEKEND!


We participated in the 8th Annual Strange Brewfest in Port Townsend, taking home 2nd place! As usual, the brews were quite strange and pushed creative boundaries. We crafted past favorites, 7 Bloody Seas and Blue Ballz, and debuted Belgo Granny, our take on Belgian Apple Pie. If you haven't attended this fest before, it is an absolute blast and a perfect weekend getaway. Try to make it in the future, it is a great time!

The Seattle Space Needle turns 50 this year! To commemorate such an occasion the Space Needle held a beer competition, with the winners' brew being served up top for the whole year! The beer had to be made specifically for the event and 10 local breweries participated. We crafted Reign Man ESB, a tasty ode to the Seattle Super Sonics. Although not the winner, Reign Man ESB did quite well and was enjoyed by all. Congrats to Seattle's Pike Brewery for the win!

Alright, let's talk 7 Seas expansion. Our new home in downtown Gig Harbor is almost ready to move in! We are very excited! Things are going along very well. We will begin the process of installing our new brewhouse and tanks in mere weeks. It will take time, but we hope to have our first brew happen there in mid-April. The Tap Room will remain where it is until sometime between the end-of-summer and the end-of the year. We will then move down and 7 Seas will be OPEN for business in its new home. Can't wait to show everyone!

NEW BREWS

le Havre (the Harbor) Belgian Winter Ale
First light of dawn; a poised Rubber-Booted Artisan, a calm and peaceful brewery cloaked by the fresh, doughy aroma of malted barley, his own cloister-and Ale shall be created.  This seasonal offering is fashioned with reverence towards the long-standing tradition of Trappist Abbey-style beers of Belgium.  Brewed with Pale Ale malt, oats, and dark crystal malts, hopped with Fuggles, and fermented with authentic Belgian Abbey yeast, the ale reveals intricate layers of spice, fig, bitter chocolate and delicate alcohol.  An inviting, yet complex brew that implores us to relax, silence ourselves, and take a moment to appreciate what’s genuine, simple, and beautiful in life.  Be at ease, be at peace, and enjoy…cheers.

Brewing Specs:
OG:  18.25 plato       TG:  2.7-3.0 plato
ABV:  8.0%       IBU:  20



2011 Wheelchair Barleywine
Brewed in the tradition of British-style Barley Wines, our 2011 offering displays burgundy/brown hues, a thick off-white head of lacey foam, toasted malt, a strong presence of raisiny, vinous fruit aroma and warming alcohol.  Crafted with British Marris Otter, dark crystal and aromatic malts, liberally hopped with Glacier and East Kent Goldings, we also added 60 LBS of locally sourced Washington State Clover honey to the boil kettle.  With its’ coating, silky rich mouth-feel, and complex interplay of deep caramel malt, ripe fruit aroma and sturdy alcohol, 7 Seas 2011 Barley Wine is a colossal, yet refined brew.

Brewing Specs:
OG:  26.9 plato       TG:  6.4 plato
ABV:  10.6%       IBU: approx. 38




From all of us here at 7 Seas Brewing, enjoy a safe, relaxing holday season! See you in the New Year!


Cheers & Happy Holidays,

A New Season and it's Seasonal Brews

September 2011

Welcome to Autumn here in the Pacific Northwest! At 7 Seas Brewing Co. we have enjoyed a splendid Summer with lots of Proper Pints, a raucous 2nd year anniversary party, numerous beer festivals, boisterous times in the NW Beer Garden, and continued to work relentlessly hard at improving all that encompasses 7 Seas. We extend our gratitude towards all of our customers here at the Tap Room, and to our wholesale clients throughout the Puget Sound region. We are steadily making progress on expanding our production capacity and remain confident that more 7 Seas Ale will arrive on taps and shelves in the near future. Quickly approaching are several events worth mentioning and your consideration to attend.



Hop Prophet: 100% Wet Hop Ale:

Come late August and early September, the abundant hop cones swarming the Yakima valley reach their fruition. Wet, saturated, and dripping with essential oils and resins, they are ready for harvest. Once a year, we are presented an opportunity to brew 7 Seas Hop Prophet, a 'wet' hop ale utilizing Amarillo and Centennial varieties that go from 'vine' to 'kettle' within hours. Exclusively brewed with wet hops at a rate of over 7 LBS per BBL (31gal) of beer, the Hop Prophet yields an aroma of fresh citrus zest followed by a delicate, yet pronounced juicy bitterness. A blend of domestic Pale Ale malt, British Marris Otter malt, and a touch of light crystal malt, contribute a clean, off-dry mouthfeel with subtle notes of honey and melon fruit. With benevolence, good-will, and transcendence, the Hop Prophet bestows his almighty powers towards a successful harvest and his grace towards the hard working individuals toiling amongst the sun and soil of our treasured hop growing regions of Washington State.

Brewing Specs:
OG: 14.0 Plato   TG: 2.6 Plato
ABV: 5.8%    IBU: 100% Wet/Fresh Hops (no pellets required)
*2011 Hops: Centennial & Amarillo



7 Seas Harvest Ale:

Harvest Ale takes its inspiration from the venerable traditions of German Oktoberfest and Vienna Marzen style of beers. Employing a blend of German Munich and Vienna malts as a base,  Harvest Ale displays brilliantly clear reddish, orange hues evocative of the vibrant, rich, and deep colors that seemingly surface overnight on local Vine Maple and Aspen trees this time of year in the Northwest. Fermented at low temperatures, ester production is greatly inhibited allowing for a rounded, yet crisp malt character to fully emerge. German Hersbrucker and Czech Saaz hops contribute a moderately spicy, earthy flavor accent to this otherwise unctuously smooth brew. Prost!

Brewing Specs:
OG: 15.5 Plato   TG: 2.75 Plato
ABV: 6.5%     IBU: Approx. 27



To everyone that has, does, and continues to support 7 Seas Brewing Company we are grateful. We strive to create the best beer we can brew. We take our passion seriously, yet have fun and continuously try to improve, evolve, and learn our beloved craft. We are inspired by that often times, the elusive quest for the Ultimate Proper Pint, one that is flawless, beautiful, and somehow perfect. Cheers to you all and just remember that; "They who drink beer will think beer." -Washington Irving

Cheers,
the 7 Seas Crew

7 Seas Summer Updates

Welcome to Summer in the great Northwest!  Warm, dry weather, and long days equal prime beer drinking season.

Whether you're out hiking the Olympics, boating the Sound, biking the trails, or hitting the links, don't forget to pack a few cans of 7 Seas tall boys to quench your thirst.

We have brewed the last couple batches of our Spring Seasonal, Cascadian Dark Ale, and have begun production on our Summer Seasonal, the elusive and coveted Rude Parrot India Pale Ale.  Loud, sassy, and relentless, the Rude Parrot has an insatiable appetite for hops!  Brewed with Vienna, light Crystal, and a touch of Honey malt, this golden hued IPA is aggressively hopped with Simcoe and Citra hops.  A big juicy, tropical fruit hop nose yields way to an off dry, pleasantly bitter finish.  The perfect pint for hot, sunny days, the Parrot pairs beautifully with fish and poultry off the grill and lighter summer time fare, such as grilled veggies and salads.

Rude Parrot IPA Brewing Specs:
OG=13.8 dgrees Plato
TG=2.2-2.7 degrees Plato
ABV=5.85%
IBU=approx. 75

Season's Greetings from 7 Seas Brewing

Hello all! We here at 7 Seas hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Hopefully some proper pints got you through that cold streak.

Our current seasonal offering, 'Saison du Sept Mers' has had a short stay here in port before it sets sail in the next few weeks. Arriving to port is a new brew, 'Santa's Smokin' Winter Warmer'. It will keep our spirits high and bellies warm this time of year.

Santa's Smokin' Release Party

'Santa's Smokin' will debut Tuesday, December 14th at Crown Bar in Tacoma @ 6pm. They will be hosting a 7 Seas Brewer's Night/ Release Party including holiday prize giveaways accompanied by the new beer in addition to more 7 Seas brews.

Santa's Smokin' Winter Warmer

Our take on a Smoked Porter, 7 Seas-style. For this special holiday brew we combine malts from Germany, Britain, Canada and the US to create a globally inspired beer based on the principles of love and good humanity towards our neighbors. Santa's Smokin' ale displays a rich depth of malt accented by a subtle smoky note. Hopped with Centennial, Glacier, and Willamettes, a delicate bitterness brings the bold malt and warming alcohol into balance. Pair Santa's Smokin' ale with a variety of rich holiday foods, cheers!

MORE BEER, expansion and upcoming move

Press Release: For Immediate Release

7 Seas Brewing announces expansion to historic downtown Gig Harbor

Job-creating move will greatly expand capacity of popular local craft brewery

Gig Harbor — 7 Seas Brewing Co. has announced a move and expansion into a larger building in historic downtown Gig Harbor.  The popular local craft brewery has outgrown their current space and says construction is already underway in the new facility, located in downtown’s Peninsula Shopping Center, just a block from the waterfront.  Initially, the company says, the expansion will create four new jobs.

7 Seas Brewing Co. will be occupying 11,000 sq/ft of the previous QFC grocery store, and the new site will dedicate 8,600 sq/ft to their production facility, and 2,400 sq/ft towards a Tap Room.  Partnering with AAA Metal Fabrication of Oregon, a new, shiny, stainless steel, custom-built steam-fired 25 bbl (775 gallon) 3-vessel brew-house arrives in mid-January.  7 Seas secured SBA financing through local Heritage Bank to fund the expansion, which was made necessary after successive expansions left them no room to expand in their existing space.

7 Seas Brewing Co. opened in 2009 after rebounding from a devastating fire that tore through their initial facility in downtown Gig Harbor. The fire, stemming from a neighboring business’s space heater, destroyed 80% of their assets and equipment.  They relocated to their current building and began operating on an 8.5 bbl (265 gal.) brew-house.

“We’re really excited.  The new facility will house both the 8.5 bbl and the new 25 bbl brew-houses. This will allow 7 Seas Brewing Co. to produce year-round offerings on the larger brew-house as well as experiment and create new seasonal beers on the smaller brew-house,” said Mike Runion, one of the brewery’s owners.

The initial brewery footprint at full capacity could eventually produce up to 20,000 bbls/year. However, 7 Seas Brewing Co. estimates a first calendar year production of around 4,000 bbls, with annual growth as new tanks are installed in the future.

The new facility is expected to be brewing its first batches of 7 Seas beer in March of 2012. The new Tap Room is expected to open sometime between June-October of 2012 and maintain a cozy, living room feel while providing a little more space to enjoy a pint and watch the brewery in action.  The current 7 Seas Tap Room will remain open during the transition.

With the sun shining and waters warming up, it’s time to quench that growing thirst with Gig Harbor’s 7 Seas Brewing’s Summer Seasonal: Life Jacket Session IPA!

Join us for the release at an epic venue, Cheney Stadium. The stadium’s first ever beer release. The seasonal brew will be available throughout the Stadium in multiple locations. 7 Seas’ Brewmaster Travis Guterson adds, “Baseball and beer are match made in NW heaven. Cheney Stadium, being the progressive, forward thinkers they are, have an excellent craft beer selection. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with them on this launch!”

This NW summer classic style, Session IPA, balances low ABV, high drinkability, with bursting hop flavor and aroma. Life Jacket Session IPA is well suited to quench your thirst and deliver hoppy satisfaction.  Brewed with Pale Ale, Pilsner, and a touch of Wheat & Light Crystal malts-- the beer finishes crisp and clean with a load of Amarillo and Nugget hops imparting juicy hop aromas of tangerine and grapefruit.  At a relaxing 4.8% ABV, this brew is perfect for enjoying on our beautiful NW waters, backyard BBQ, or at a ball game! Available June-August on Draft.

Who’ll be throwing out the first pitch? None other then, WA’s Craft Beer Ambassador, Kendall Jones, a freelance writer and freestyle beer drinker. In 2008 Kendall founded the Washington Beer Blog, one of the Northwest’s most popular and trusted sources for beer news and information.
